Off field controversies and the sale of key players may well have blunted Athletic Bilbao’s ability to perform at the top level in recent years, but the Basque club appear to be enjoying something of a resurgence this term, and they will be hoping to add to their unbeaten record at San Mames this season. Coach, Ernesto Valverde, who played at the club during the 1990’s, may have felt that he had something to prove after failing to gain Champions League qualification with Valencia, and the Basque club’s strong belief in home grown players was confirmed with the recent signing of striker Kike Sola though he looks doubtful for Monday’s game. In his absence, expect to see attacking midfielders, Oscar de Marcos and Ander Herrera taking a prominent role.  

Villareal were relegated from La Liga during a wretched 2011/12 season but they gained promotion after a one-year hiatus, and have made a fine start to this campaign with five wins and a come from behind 2-2 draw against Real Madrid. They certainly know how to give their spectators value for money, with six of their eight matches finishing with three or more goals scored. Cani has always been conduit to the majority of their attacking play, and while he may be best known outside of Spain for a water bottle throwing incident with Jose Mourinho; the former Zaragoza man has continued to score with regularity. 

You can find more football matches from a range of countries and competitions in the live streaming sports schedule.

The clubs fought out two exciting draws when they met in 2011/12 though Villareal had won the three previous meetings. Athletic will hope that their vocal support can assist in continuing their fine home form though the likelihood of missing players is of concern so Valencia should give them plenty to think about.

Athletic Bilbao      6/5
Villarreal                11/5
Draw                       12/5
